Seven Days of Consecration

“And you shall not go out from the door of the tent of meeting for seven days, until the days of your ordination are completed, for it will take seven days to ordain you. As has been done today, the Lord has commanded to be done to make atonement for you.  At the door of the tent of meeting you shall remain day and night for seven days, performing what the Lord has charged, lest you die; for so I am commanded.”  And Aaron and his sons did all the things which the Lord commanded by Moses.” Leviticus 8:33-36

Aaron and his sons the priests were consecrated for seven days, day and night. Is this showing us that God will use the full 7,000 years to consecrate his priests, both the Jewish and Christian varieties?

“On the eighth day Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel; and he said to Aaron, “Take a bull calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, both without blemish, and offer them before the Lord.  And say to the people of Israel, ‘Take a male goat for a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb, both a year old without blemish, for a burnt offering, and an ox and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the Lord, and a cereal offering mixed with oil; for today the Lord will appear to you.” Leviticus 9:1-4

The Lord will appear on the eighth day. Is that this? – “On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives which lies before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley; so that one half of the Mount shall withdraw northward, and the other half southward.” Zechariah 14:4

Some may be of the thought that the priests will be consecrated before the end of the seventh day. We can’t rush God.
